It Doesn't Get Any Cooler - The 1970 and 1971 Dodge Challenger
As an heir of the last generation of Muscle Cars, the legendary 1970 1971 Dodge Challenger was a milestone concept in terms of style and power. The short history of American Muscle Cars which were born on the basis of 1950s platforms designs, is one of the greatest glories and deepest loves on the experience of so many pilots. The Dodge Challenger was the most outstanding representative of this era, and the last in its generation.
1970 Dodge Challenger
The Dodge Challenger was based on the Plymouth Barracuda E-Body platform, but with the addition of two inches to the wheelbase to give more room to its interior. The Challenger was introduced in various versions: hardtop, coupe and convertible. Performance versions had the R/T (Road and Track) logo and both the standard model and the R/T could be ordered with the SE luxury package. This extra package included leather seats and vinyl roof with the "traditional" smaller rear window. The Challenger base models came with a Slant Six 225 cu in V6 engine, but it impressed by the wide range of engine options, ending with the high-end Magnum 426 Hemi V8 with 425bhp. The Hemi had an extra cost of $ 1228 and required strengthened equipment.
Dodge Challenger 1970 model versions also included T/A (Trans Am). This racing homologation model was intended to compete in the Sports Car Club of America's Trans American Sedan Championship.
1971 Dodge Challenger
Changes for this models included a new “split” front grille, taillights were placed on the left and right sides, taking then from the centered position they had in 1970's model. T/A model was promoted but never constructed, since Dodge had withdrawn from Trans Am racing. The R/T convertible was also abandoned and the package was offered in the base model Challenger. 1971 R/T had bumper colors matching with the car body, decorative brake ventilation slots in its rear flanks and new adhesive lines. The 383 engine was still standard on R/T models, but were re-calibrated to 300 hp due to a lower compression required to comply with new government rules.
